Forum: etree Subject: Egypt GD show

A while back i remember hearing on the GD radio chanel a piece of incrediblely unique music, performed by the GD while they were at the pyramids in Egypt. It began with a tribe performing traditional music until Jerry jumped in and began picking along with the tribe. I was wondering if anyone else is familiar with this and if this show from Egypt is available anywhere, as i am desperately wanting to revisit this oddity.

Agree with lip on this one. Historic yes, but seemingly out of step and out of tune and dwarfed by the Winterland shows upon their return to the states. (Though that picture of Jerry on the camel turned into one of my favorite GD stickers of all time.) Man I miss my old ride that had that one stuck to the back window...

I agree on the Egypt shows... nice to have in the collection, but not shows you're apt to listen to very often.

On the other hand, the soundchecks contain a lot of interesting stuff. Funny how two of the more historically historical stands (Egypt, Watkins Glen) have soundchecks that dwarf the quality of the shows.

They're up on bt.etree.org about three pages back. My guess is not many folks seeding those shows, so may take quite some time.

David Gans was playing some of the 9-15-78 show on the radio two weeks ago. You might check the www.kpfa.org music library for this 60 minute mp-3 download. Not sure if he's gonna do it nationally yet; buit a lot of those GDH shows evolved from KPFA weeks before...

There is a free download available from NUGS.NET. It is not the Egypt it is Sunday 10/22/78 at the Winterland Arena in San Francisco. Hamza El Din is announced by Mickey and is later joined by Jerry during Ollin Arageed. Jerry "noodles" along with him in a extremely sweet jam.
Thank God for Brad Serling and NUGS.NET

The Egypt shows have great historical GD significance, but musically, it just didn't work out. Maybe it was the different continent, or a situation that had too many things disrupted, but if you've got a choice, go for some prime 1977 shows from 6/9/77, 5/21/77, 9/3/77, 5/8,9/77, etc...
